    Title: Professor and Head Anatomy and Cell Biology
    Office: 578 CME M/C Phone: 9966791

    Research Interest:
    Our research addresses four areas: 1) Molecular Mechanisms of Axonal Transport analyzing the cell and molecular biology of kinesins in the nervous system; 2) Specialization of the Neuronal Cytoskeleton focusing on posttranslational modifications and transport mechanisms for cytoskeletal proteins in the neuron; 3) Glial Modulation of Neuronal Function examining the effects that myelination has on neuronal structure and function; and 4) Effects of Physiological Stress on Neurons evaluating the changes in cytoskeletal and synaptic proteins and structures in response to chronic glucocorticoid stress.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 10

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Completed sophomore year; Taken a course in at least one and preferably tow of the following areas: neuroscience, cell biology, biochemistry or molecular biology.

    Brief Summary of what is expected from the student:
    The student should be willing to make a sustained commitment with a regular schedule during the school year. Summer research options are only available to students that have been involved during the academic year. Students interested in a multiyear experience are preferred.
